Source Engine is fun because of compile times. With every .vmt and .qc comes a third party program with lengthy compiles. The largest problem with development lately has been time management (as always). I have classes and work 40+ hours a week on top of trying to maintain a social life. Not to say I've been sitting around for the last couple months on this project. A large amount of mapping, modelwork, soundwork, and texture work has been done since. Without spoilers here are some blender screenshots of some props in development

I am highly considering moving to the unreal engine. All of the time wasted on compile times can be spent fully modeling environments. Should I move to unreal? Should I stick to source? Should I ditch this project entirely? Let me know in the comments below.
